Greetings fellow GISers,
It will be cool and showery on Wednesday so we'll move back indoors for this month's Happy Hour at the Mount Hood Brewing Company, 401 SE Caruthers Street. We'll try to take over the rail cars on the river side of the pub facing Tillikum Crossing.I'll try and establish a presence there by ~ 5:15. They don't offer happy hour prices, so beers are $5.50. The menu is pizza oriented.
By bike its easiest to ride along the east waterfront/Esplanade to get there. Streetcar and Max also stop nearby.
For those of you in San Diego this week, you shouldn't miss all the fun.
